Error description

  • Description
    -----------
    There is a difference in code generated for .IDL file with
    Rhapsody version 7.5.3.1 and version 7.6.1 and higher,
    associated to expression of multiplicity of an attribute within
    a DDS topic structure.
    This is a regression.
    
    For example - If a new topic structure (Name_List) is declared
    having a new attribute(phonenumber) of type unsigned long with
    multiplicity as 12
    The code generated with Rhapsody 7.6.1 or higher is:
    struct Name_List {
        ////    Attributes    ////
    
        sequence?unsigned long,12? phonenumber[12];  //## attribute
    phonenumber
    };
    
    Here If the multiplicity is set to 1..12 the generated idl is:
    
    struct Name_List {
        ////    Attributes    ////
    
        sequence?unsigned long,1..12? phonenumber[12];  //##
    attribute phonenumber
    };
    
    
    However, for same scenario with Rhapsody 7.5.3.1, there is a
    difference in code generation
    //## type Name_List
    struct Name_List {
        sequence?unsigned long,12? phone_Number;  //## attribute
    phone_Number
    };
    
    The code generated with Rhapsody 7.5.3.1 appears correct, at
    least when processed by the rtiddsgen tool but not the code
    generated with Rhapsody version 7.6.1 or higher.
